The purpose of this study is to find a relationship between the parameters describing the microstructural homogeneity of SiC particle reinforced Al metal matrix composites. The Al-SiC powder mixtures having different particle size combinations were hot-pressed after careful mixing. The optical microscope images of the microstructures were processed by using an image analyzing program; the binary morphology was chosen for characterizing the SiC particle distribution.

Investigation of microstructure inhomogeneity in SiCp-reinforced aluminum matrix composites
Gacsi, Zoltan; Gür, Cemil Hakan; Makszimus, Andrea; Pieczonka, Tadeusz (2007-01-01)
The type, volume fraction, size, shape and arrangement of embedded particles influence the mechanical properties of the particle reinforced metal matrix composites. This presents the investigation of the SiC particle and porosity distributions in various aluminum matrix composites produced by cold- and hot-pressing. The inicrostructures were characterized by optical microscopy and stereological parameters. SiC and porosity volume fractions, and the anisotropy distribution function were measured to establish...
Nonlinear fiber modeling of steel-concrete partially composite beams with channel shear connectors
Öztürk, Alper; Baran, Eray; Department of Civil Engineering (2017)
The purpose of this study is to develop a nonlinear fiber-based finite element model of steel-concrete composite beams. The model was developed in OpenSees utilizing the available finite element formulations and the readily available uniaxial material constitutive relations. The model employed beam elements for the steel beam and the concrete slab, while zero-length connector elements were used for the steel-concrete interface. The channel shear connector response used in numerical models was based on the p...
Analysis of fiber reinforced composite vessel under hygrothermal loading
Sayman, Sümeyra; Parnas, Kemal Levend; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2003)
The aim of this study is to develop an explicit analytical formulation based on the anisotropic elasticity theory that determines the behavior of fiber reinforced composite vessel under hygrothermal loading. The loading is studied for three cases separately, which are plane strain case, free ends and pressure vessel cases. For free-end and pressure vessel cases, the vessel is free to expand, on the other hand for plane strain case, the vessel is prevented to expand. Throughout the study, constant, linear an...
Synthesis and characterization of aluminum alloy 7075 reinforced with silicon carbide particulates
Kalkanlı, Ali (2008-01-01)
In this study 7075 matrix alloy is chosen and SiC particles having average particle size of 29 mu m was incorporated into the alloy at the liquid state before vertical pressure casting. Four different additions of SiCp were made and the weight fractions used are 10%, 15%, 20% and 30%. Composites were processed by vertical pressure/squeeze casting machine developed at Middle East Technical University (METU) under 80 MPa pressure. The mold is specially designed to produce specimens for tensile and three point...
